This independent short film, based on an incredible true story, follows a seven-year old Afghan refugee’s battle to survive as he is smuggled to the UK in the back of a refrigerated lorry and the air inside begins to run out.
A fast-paced thriller, the film will be shown as part of the 2017 BFI London Film Festival’s “Thrill of the Chase” short film showcase.
